Be a part of the Solution

Transform the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) into concrete initiatives at your workspace with our SDG Officer Program. This course will help you recognize opportunities within your workplace to leverage sustainable change and provide you with the tools required to execute your ideas.

Changing your own behaviors can be a relatively simple but embedding sustainability into the heart of a business’ operations requires innovation, collaboration and strategic thinking.

What is the SDG Officer Program?

The SDG Officer Program is a 5-session course that combines methodology with training and takes participants through the core components of implementing a sustainable project; from strategic priority mapping, to planning, to execution, to impact assessment. Participants will have a strong understanding of the steps they will need to take to implement their ideas within the workplace as we walk them through building a campaign from start to finish.
